Bounder Sidewall Cracking

This crack starts at the lower forward corner of the rear slides. It appears to be lengthening over time. Any thoughts on the root cause or how to stop the crack? Iíve thought about drilling a stop but if thereís a specific reason the crack is there in the first place, I doubt a stop hole will work.

Looks like the slide is putting weight on the side wall where it's not supposed to.
F=MA and bouncing down the road the slide is hammering the wall.
I would check the slide rollers for wear or misalignment, or maybe even missing rollers. They are supposed to carry the weight, not the wall.
